Overprescribing Opioids Charges & Investigations

Federal Defense Attorneys for Medical Doctors

As our society struggles with the health crisis of addiction, the government continues to wage a “war on drugs” that prioritizes prosecution over treatment. Most recently, the federal government has targeted medical professionals in New England who prescribe opioids for special scrutiny. The investigative resources of federal law enforcement are vast, and many doctors, nurse practitioners, and other medical professionals will face investigations in this latest misled effort by the government. Medical providers face a difficult balance between meeting patients’ needs for pain relief and other necessary treatment and running the risk of being accused of “overprescribing.”

If you become aware that you are the subject of an investigation into the prescribing of opioids or receive a subpoena for records, it is very important to consult a lawyer who is experienced in representing health care professionals in federal investigations. You might even only learn of an investigation when a federal agent shows up asking to interview you. It is a crime to make a materially false statement during an investigation, so the wisest course is to consult with an attorney before you make any statements to law enforcement.

The federal criminal defense groupat Shaheen & Gordon P.A. is comprised of attorneys who have deep experience in federal investigations and prosecutions, including those that make unique issues and problems for medical providers. The sooner we can work on your defense, the better. You do not need to have been charged or investigated yet to hire a defense attorney. If you are worried about facing a federal investigation or criminal charge soon, then call (888) 801-9916 now.
